Description

An exciting album of new songs and music - words by Alexander McCall Smith, one of the world's most popular and prolific authors and a poet, and James Ross, who is earning a growing reputation as a composer of music that pushes the boundaries of Scottish traditional music. The songs are performed by Michelle Burke, who was the lead singer with Irish-American music group 'Cherish The Ladies', and the gorgeous, peat-smoked tone of Kathleen MacInnes, a Gaelic singer from South Uist of international acclaim, who has been part of Transatlantic Sessions and featured in Ridley Scott's film 'Robin Hood'. James Ross plays piano and Alexander McCall Smith narrates. Session musicians include: Su-a-Lee (cello), Patsy Reid (fiddle), Leo Forde (guitar), Angus Lyon (accordion), Liam Bradley (percussion) and John Kenny (trombone).
